Miss Parker Lynn Malone joined us on April 9th at 12:04 am, after almost 19 hours of labor. She weighed a healthy 8 lbs 9 oz and was 21 inches long. She is BEAUTIFUL! She's got dark hair now with a little curl in it and blue/green eyes, but I'm sure both of those will change over the next couple of months.

Mom and baby are both doing great and should go home from the hospital today (Friday). Dad is loving it! Some of his players signed their game day lineup card yesterday for her day box - good thing it was a winner! They all said some pretty cute things.

We'll post some pictures when we get home. Thanks for all your kind words and thoughts over the last couple of days, we are lucky to have such great friends!

Well, we had a sonogram and saw the doctor on Tuesday last week... and he moved up the induction! Miss Parker will be joining us on Wednesday, April 8!

At the 37 week sonogram last week, Parker weighed in at 8 lbs 2 oz already. Ouch! The sonogram tech also mentioned what a large head she had... thanks for that! But anyway, there is no more room in my belly for Parker to stay for 3 more weeks. Doctor said that if we waited until my actual due date of the 23rd she would weigh over 10 lbs - no thank you!

I see my doctor again on Tuesday afternoon and he has me scheduled to check in the hospital that evening. All depends on whether or not my cervix is working on preparing itself. The actual induction will begin early Wednesday morning. I am definitely getting nervous - mostly about the pain and the unknown, not about being a mom.

Today was my last day of work and I am planning on spending most of the weekend getting any last minute things done around the house. My parents and Scott's mom will arrive on Tuesday - they are all very excited! Scott will be home all next week (they are playing in Corpus) so that will be great for him, the timing is much better. Parker must have wanted her daddy to be around!

We'll put up some pictures as soon as we can!
